Improving our student’s ability to understand and take multiple choice tests.This includes but is not limited too, teaching students how to decipher the format of multiple choice tests such as the SSATs and better understand what the question is actually asking. Helping students spot and avoid trick questions and narrow down possibilities in questions they are not familiar with. Teaching students proper strategy for taking the SSAT including when and how to guess at questions they don’t know and how to manage their time to provide the highest number of correct answers possible.
Developing student’s ability to read, understand, and comprehend passages on tests. Specifically how to absorb information from passages efficiently and how to take effective notes during test conditions in order to improve their speed and accuracy on the upcoming SSAT.
Expanding our student’s vocabulary to improve their grades on the verbal portion of the upcoming SSAT. This was the area that students performed worse on in our SSAT generally. We intend to make it our top priority. We have a lot of room to improve in this area and we plan to implement a strategy to do this as quickly as possible.

Recommend Grade 5-7 to learn
